Spinach, Tomato, and Feta Omelet Recipe 2009-10-21 12:28:21

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon butter
  3. 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  4. 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  5. 4 ounces (1 cup) baby spinach
  6. 4 to 6 pitted black olives, sliced
  7. 3 eggs
  8. 1 sprig rosemary, chopped
  9. 1/4 cup half-and-half
  10. 1/2 pinch salt
  11. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  12. 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  1. Place a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and butter. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and halved tomatoes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add the baby spinach and olives and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, or until all of the spinach is wilted, then reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Beat the eggs, rosemary, half-and-half, salt and pepper and pour into the pan. Stir constantly so that the eggs do not brown. When the center is just a little soft, crumble the feta cheese all around the omelet. Fold onto the plate and serve.

I agree with vegesquire, I don't think the oil and full fat egg are necessary. Pam works great!

Between the 3 whole eggs, 1/4 cup of feta, 2 tablespoons of added fat, and 1/4 cup of half and half, I don't know that I'd consider this a healthy dish. It's quite high in fat, calories and cholesterol. I'm not saying that these ingredients are unhealthy in themselves, just in the quantity required by this recipe.Would I eat it? You bet! Sounds like a great splurge meal to me.However, I think it's really misleading to consider it healthy. Recipes like this, marketed as healthy, are part of the reason why a lot of people switching to a vegetarian diet end up gaining weight. We think that choosing the vegetarian option automatically means it's more healthful, which is just not the case sometimes. Simple changes to this would make it healthier: use 1 whole egg and 1 egg white. Skip the half and half altogether (it's just not necessary). Use a tablespoon or two of the cheese.
